HANNIBAL — The upcoming exhibits at the Hannibal Arts Council include a traveling exhibit, an open exhibit, a retrospective exhibit and two digital photography exhibits.
Fifteen artists from four regions of Missouri were selected into the 60-piece traveling exhibit titled Missouri Art Now: A Bicentennial Celebration. The juried exhibit celebrates Missouri’s vibrant visual arts culture now. Northeast Missouri/Hannibal area artists selected into the exhibit includes Mary Jo Kattelman, of Newark, Mo. Howard Kuo, of Hannibal, Sally Kintz, of Clarksville, Mo. and Debra Scoggin Myers, of Ewing, Mo.
The Jean Vincent/Scipio Pottery Retrospective features salt-glazed pottery created by the treasured Hannibal artist and local arts champion. Vincent’s exhibition showcases her many clay forms, glazing techniques and visually shows a progression of her body of work.
The Bees Knees is an open exhibit of submitted artwork featuring anything bee-related — including bees, honey, honeycombs and honey pots.
